Serving Suggestions

This asparagus is fantastic as a side dish to your favorite protein recipe.

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus Air Fryer FAQ

What Kind of Bacon should I use?
This comes down to personal preference! I prefer to use a standard cut of bacon because I like it to crisp up in the air fryer, but you can use a thicker cut of bacon if you prefer that. 
Why do I snap off the ends of Asparagus?
The ends of asparagus spears have a “woody” texture that does not get as tender and is difficult to eat. Therefore, snapping off the ends is important before cooking your spears.
Can these be assembled ahead of time?
Yes, these can ABSOLUTELY be assembled ahead of time! Simply wrap them up and pop them in the air fryer when you are ready to enjoy them.
